Exercise and the Pelvic Floor Workshop ~ Wellington
from 08:30 AM to 05:00 PM
This highly interactive workshop is suited to all health and fitness professionals with and interest in learning more about the pelvic floor. We examine the anatomy and function of the pelvic floor, looking at its integral role as part of the “core” and what happens when things go wrong.
After learning about the various risk factors commonly facing many of your patients/clients, you’ll gain confidence using a screening tool to help both identify and discuss these risk factors with them.
We’ll then look at which types of exercise may be detrimental to those at risk of/or suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction, and consider activity modifications or alternative pelvic floor safe exercises. And of course, we’ll discuss when an onward referral to a specialist practitioner is required. All participants will be provided with screening tools to take with them.
